PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will host a talk on What the Bible Says About Suffering and Death on Thursday, April 7 beginning at 7 p.m. in the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center, 146 Metlars Lane.
Sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Catechesis, the two-hour program will be presented by Father Sean Winters, coordinator of hospital chaplains for the diocesan Office of Hospital Chaplaincy and chaplain at Raritan Bay Medical Center, Perth Amboy. A chaplain for the past 24 years, Father Winters has served in three different hospitals in the diocese.
The talk on What the Bible Says About Suffering and Death – originally set for January but rescheduled because of snow – is the sixth of a seven-part series entitled, “The Bible: Root of our Catholic Faith.” The adult faith formation program is designed to help Catholics better understand their biblical foundations and to explore Catholic beliefs, as found in – or as “rooted in” – Scripture. It will conclude on May 5 with an experience of different ways to pray with scripture.
The program is free and is open to all who want to know more about biblical tradition as it relates to Bible Scripture. It is especially intended as a resource for those who are involved in their parish ministries including: deacons, RCIA candidates and sponsors, evangelization and adult faith formation teams, catechists and parish catechetical leaders, Catholic school teachers, young adults, youth ministers, pastoral council members and liturgical ministers. Participants are not required to attend all sessions.
